Chad Byers' Progress Update #8
By Chad Byers
 
 
 



Please note: This is Part 9 of a series of articles following Chad Byers’ quest to gain 30 pounds of muscle in a year. To read/review Part 8 (where you will find links to the previous articles), please click here.

It has been one month since my last update. Since then I have lost 6 lbs. (current weight is 208lbs.). My diet has remained mostly the same as last month, and I am still alternating between higher and lower calorie days. I am back to eating three meals per day, consisting mainly of raw fruits and vegetables, with cooked food occasionally, but not every day.

Strength training days (Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday) still consist of total body compound lifts.

I have been doing fasted 20-30 minute conditioning workouts (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) and take off one day per week (Saturday).

I am still taking 3 servings of Cell Block80 per day, including one pre-workout.
